It is with sadness that the family announce the passing of Patricia Anne Harley on December 01, 2015 at Ty Watson House. Alistair, her husband of 52 years was by her side and holding her hand.
Patsy was predeceased by her parents, her sister Wanda, son Donald John and is survived by her loving husband Alistair, daughter Wanda and son Aaron, five grandchildren and three great children, sister Sharon, nieces, nephews and many friends.
Born July 13, 1945 in Moosejaw, Sask., Patsy arrived in Port Alberni when she was 9 years of age. She attended 8th Avenue and ADHS schools, marrying Al July 20, 1963. After raising her family, she went to work at the AV Times. When the printing of the paper was moved to Nanaimo and Al retired, they started their family business, Al’s Feathers Be Gone. In her spare time, Patsy liked to play bingo.
Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Patsy’s life will be held later in the spring of 2016.
